The beautiful town of Eastleigh is home to almost 30,000 people, and along with the suburbs and airport around it, attracts more tourists than you’d expect.
However, as a town not far from the Solent and the South Coast, the residents are no stranger to rain, wind and changeable temperatures.
Whilst most have mastered keeping their home warm and cosy, regardless of the weather outside, keeping the exterior of the property looking fresh and clean can be tricky in the face of constant rain showers, weeds and wind blowing dirt and grime around.
In order to combat this, our expert team have started installing resin driveways for residents. When it comes to housing exteriors and resin driveways, Eastleigh is really beginning to ‘pave the way’ for neater and more eco-friendly homes! Here’s how…
Why Eastleigh Residents Are Opting For Resin
Resin driveways are created with a mix of natural aggregate material, marble, stone and recycled glass, stirred and topped with a strong layer of clear resin, to create a stunningly smooth surface and finish. The resin coat essentially makes a driveway wonderfully wipe-clean.
Each particle or stone is fully coated in clear resin and then laid onto a stable base. This can happen over your existing driveway, should it be stable enough. If not, the existing driveway can be removed by specialist installers, and a ‘sub-layer’ put down instead.
This ‘sub-layer’ looks like a thick plastic grid of squares or rectangles, within which the stones are placed. Once finished, the grid is invisible. Having to remove your existing driveway to place down a sub-layer of this type takes longer than direct application, but ensures a smooth and stable driveway that’ll stand the test of time.
What Do Our Hampshire Customers Think?
“Very pleased with my driveway. I was kept informed about starting. Site manager also said when they would start and finish and this adhered to. Pleasant work personnel. Standard of workmanship excellent.” – Mrs Smith’s review on TrustPilot
Once laid, the finished depth can be anywhere between 12mm-24mm, dependent on the type of stone used. Different types, shapes and colours of stone can be adapted to suit your specifications – a range of colours and types are available to choose from, so you can select a resin driveway style that best suits your home.
